OPEN Today: Sept. 30, 2023


In Room 507, a hotel guest was unexpectedly locked out one evening. The key card just stopped working. A hotel security guard came to help, but he was unable to get any key card to work. Then both men heard movement in the room and became convinced that somehow an intruder, possibly a thief, had broken into the room. The security guard began loudly demanding the invader open the door. Eventually the frustrated men heard a click. The door suddenly opened, but to their surprise they discovered that there was no one inside. The guest was immediately relocated to another hotel room. Should you ever be lucky enough to stay at the Hilton Inn, please report back and share your experiences.

Expect to see downtown in a whole new light as you hear the spooky stories of the city. Learn why the Pfister Hotel is as notorious with Major League Baseball players as it is with paranormal investigators, why your eyes might be drawn upward when visiting City Hall, which bar has a 121-year-old mummified cat as a mascot, and the identity of the ghost that might be sitting next to you at the Pabst Theater, among other stories.

This tour runs in cold temperatures and light rain, so please dress accordingly and wear comfortable shoes.

The tour route is wheelchair-accessible, just let us know if you plan on using one, so we can adjust the route appropriately for your comfort.
